Dear colleagues,

I am happy to announce version v0.7.1 of khmer. It is identical to v0.7
except that it properly installs. Thanks go to Dylan Bodington
@TheIcemanBoreth for quick reporting of the problem with v0.7.

Here's the changelog:

* New script: sample-reads-randomly.py which does a single pass random
subsample using reservoir sampling.

* the version number is now only stored in one place

* Makefile: new dist, cppcheck, pep8, and autopep8 targets for developers.
VERSION is now set by versioneer and exported to C/C++ code.

* README switched from MarkDown to ReStructuredText format to clean up PyPI
listing. Install count badge added.

* doc/: updates to how the scripts are called. Sphinx now pulls version
number from versioneer. C/Python integration is now partially documented.
Reference to bleeding-edge has been removed. Release instructions have been
clarified and simplified.

* all python code in khmer/, scripts/, and tests/ should be PEP8 compliant

* khmer/_khmermodule.cc has gotten a once-over with cpychecker. Type errors
were eliminated and the error checking has improved.

* Several fixes motivated by the results of a Coverity C/C++ scan.

* Tests that require greater than 0.5 gigabytes of memory are now annotated
being 'highmem' and can be skipped by changing two lines in setup.cfg

* warnings about -Wstrict-prototypes will no longer appear

* contributors to this release are: ctb, mr-c and cswelcher.
